"The National Wine Experience"... which looks EXTREMELY intriguing.

Posted by ChipDWood, Nov 13, 2010.

The (Innaugural!) National Wine Experience

When:

November 20th, 2010 (Saturday)
7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Where:

The Newseum, Washington DC (Link to Directions page for the venue)
555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W.
Washington, DC 20001

What:

"The National Wine Experience presented by USA TODAY (NWE) is America’s premier national wine exhibition featuring wine from over twenty five states across the country.  For the first time, you’ll be able to sample, compare and contrast wine from well-established wineries in traditional wine-growing states alongside wine from smaller, artisan producers in less-familiar wine regions. It will be a unique wine tasting and culinary experience you can’t find anywhere else."

[Ed. Note: Wolfgang Puck is going to be planning the regionally-based menu, so it will be most interesting not only from a wine perspective but also from that of what's being tasted with them.]

Important:

Tickets are going to be sold online only.  Click this link to get yourself some.  Tickets.

Here's a list of ALL the wineries that will be there.  How to taste them all in two hours & fifty?  If you are Superman, it'll be no problem at all ;).

BUT: I love the theme here and am fully behind the platform.  There are a number of solid estates from out west coming (including Ramey, Cambria, Matanzas Creek from Cali- some from Waashington and Oregon)- and the contrast between they and places in the East like Veritas (My personal fave), Barboursville, Delfosse, & Democracy Vineyards from Virginia ALONE- LET along several from New York and PA...

Just going to be interesting.  Wish I could go myself and would love to see a trip report emerge from the knowledgable Snooth audience...
